Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Using reference planes, parameters, and constraints, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- In this movie we're gonna look at reference planes,…parameters, and constraints.…Now we're working on a pool table family…and I'm in a file called Pool Table View one…and we built this file in the previous movie…and I've got the four windows tiled…onscreen here,…Floor plan, two elevations and 3D view.…If you want to review any of that…you can review the previous movie.…Feel free to open up my version of the file here,…Pool Table View one,…or you can work in your own.…So let's get started here in the Floor Plan…Reference Level View…and you can see that we've got these two reference…planes Center Front Back and Center Left Right,…they're both pinned and they kind of mark…the insertion point of this family.…
So what we want to do is make sure that…the family that we build is oriented relative to that…insertion point in a logical way.…In this case I'm gonna make sure…that my family is centered on that.…So I'm gonna go over here to the Create panel…and I want to start with a couple reference planes,…Reference Plane button is right here…

Paul also shows advanced techniques for modeling stairs, complex walls, and partially obscured building elements, as well as adding rooms and solid geometry. Finally, discover how to annotate your drawing so all the components are perfectly understood, and learn how to output sheets to DWF, PDF, or AutoCAD.
